*I am not Chinese, nor do I pretend to know much about cooking Asian dishes. I wanted to make a Chinese inspired dish with ground beef and couldn't find a recipe so I decided to make one up. To create this dish I combined all the Chinese ingredients from my fridge and cupboards :). It turned out pretty good!
1 lb. ground beef
1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 cup green onions, chopped
1 (15 oz.) jar roasted red peppers, chopped then rinsed
3 tablespoons Chili Dipping Sauce (it has a sweet flavor)
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon hot chili sauce (add less if you cannot tolerate heat)
3/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup packed chopped lettuce
1 1/2 cups dry rice, cooked
In a large pot brown the ground beef and garlic. Add the remaining ingredients with exception of the lettuce and rice. Cook on medium heat until heated through; remove from stove. Stir in the lettuce. Serve over hot cooked rice.
Yields: 5 servings
